They outlined their wishes in every

be as follows: A democrat is prom

Harris, populist, is to continue in the
senate, Botkin, Vincent, McCormick,
Ridgely, Peters and Simpson, all
signers and populists, are to con

largely given to populists, the demo

make the largest showing in conven

in filling the offices and dictating a

the use of that grand Spring Medi
cine, Hood’s Sarsaparilla, a necessity.
The accumulated impurities in the
blood cause very different symptoms
with some people. The kidneys,
liver and bowels are overmatched in
their efforts to relieve the clogged
system. Dizzy headaches, bilious
attacks, failure of appetite, coated
tongue, latne back, indigestion and
that tired feeling arc some results.
From the same cause may also come

All these troubles and more may prop

and just us there is one cause, a cure
is found in just one remedy, and
that is Hood's Sarsaparilla.
Hood's Sarsaparilla purifies the impure
blood, enriches blood which is weak
aud thin, vitalizes blood which lacks
vitality. Thus it reaches every part
of the human system.
